Family demands justice for slain rapper Berkeley cold case murder reward increases to $50,000 Apr 16, 2019 "BERKELEY (KRON) - The Berkeley Police Department is more than tripling the reward money being offered for information to solve a cold case murder. Alex Goodwin Jr. was gunned down more than two years ago and investigators and the victim's family believe more money could help solve this case. Goodwin was shot to death outside his home just before midnight on Aug. 16, 2016 -- Changing his family's lives forever. Goodwin was just 22-years-old when he was killed." "A mural painted on his house at Mabel and Burnett Streets in Berkeley honor the late musician and, also reminds his grandmother and sister about that terrible night everyday." Officer Byron White says this is one of several cold cases for which the police department will be increasing the reward money in the near future. "As time goes on, we've seen that the $15,000 isn't enough money to bring those people who are concerned about their safety, concerned about retaliation and retribution to come forward. We're hoping that this increased amount will make people come forward," Officer White said."
